Hmm, I don't see the problem here ? Say, you specify a class 
SpringIntegration as the factory class of a certain class descriptor A 
and the method createA as the factory method. If now OJB wants to create 
an object of type A, it fetches an instance of SpringIntegration (which 
might or might not be a singleton) from the ComponentContainer and 
invokes createA. The ComponentContainer itself can create the 
SpringIntegration instance or it might have been created outside of OJB 
and then set via 
integrationInstance) or something similar. In this case it does not 
matter whether the ComponentContainer itself uses Pico or Spring or 
whatever since the SpringIntegration is free to do whatever it takes to 
create the A instance.
